I'd say the hip is starting to feel a little better, huh? For once, all of Joe's "he's feeling better, looking better at the plate" garbage actually turned out to mean something.
And even if there are still some lingering issues with the hip (and I'm pretty sure there are), that won't keep a good centaur down. He's still got 3 good hips to play on. Or maybe it's more than that. I don't actually know how many hips centaurs have.
